How to Make Edible Place Cards (Thanksgiving Part 4)

We used to have hand painted place cards for everyone.  But the boyfriends and girlfriends have come and gone over the years and even though we used to just paint over the old cards (“Welcome to our home! We know you’re name isn’t Bob but Bill is close enough so sit here!”) enough is enough.  It was time for new place cards.

My mother, being a florist by trade, decided to go all out with edible place cards.

Yes, edible.

She then decided to mount them on miniature easels made from Canthus grass.

Here are the results: (Alas, they’re a bit out of order because WordPress has just changed their photo uploading system and it’s pissing me off…)

    Those were the easiest placecards ever, Though I really want to remember my edible gold dust next year. I am so mad we did not tape your interpretive fire dance, I know a few young women who should have been there to join you, the ones in your slugalicious dance…hilarious

    and how many dogs do you know that can read? (although she needs reading glasses)
    BTW that Bon-fire may have been the best of 2012, when judged for over all appearance, symmetry, hot coals for roasting, sound, and general induced warmth.

    hmmm, let me think for a minute, NOT! My fires are always started in high winds, with soaking wet materials.
